Loropetalum Federale, commonly known as Chinese fringe flower, is an evergreen shrub that belongs to the witch-hazel family. It is native to Japan, China, and the Himalayas. The shrub can grow up to 10 feet tall and 10 feet wide with a dense and spreading growth habit. The leaves of Loropetalum Fede are oval-shaped, leathery, and dark green with a glossy finish. In the fall, the leaves may turn shades of yellow, orange, and red.

The main attraction of this shrub is its stunning flowers. The blooms appear in the early spring and last for several weeks. The flowers are deep pink, red, or white, depending on the cultivar. They are spidery in shape with long, narrow petals that resemble fringe, hence the common name "fringe flower." The blooms have a sweet, spicy fragrance that is especially noticeable in the evenings.

Loropetalum Fede is a low-maintenance shrub that prefers well-drained soil and partial to full sun. It can tolerate a wide range of soil types and is drought-tolerant once established. The shrub requires minimal pruning to maintain its shape and size, and it can be pruned after flowering to promote bushier growth and more flowers the following year. This shrub is a great choice for a variety of landscape settings, including borders, hedges, and mass plantings.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
